I have posted my old Gentoo inputrc largely so I don't lose it. The one that comes with Ubuntu sucks. This one fixes PageUp / PageDown to scroll through bash history. And it fixes the Delete key to delete rather than belch out a ~. I don't understand why these things aren't fixed by default on all distros. Is it backwards compatibility? Are there really enough people using keyboards without a Delete key that the rest of us should suffer? Or maybe I'm missing something, which is very possible.
